The recipes says 2 tablespoons of sea salt but in the video, you say 2 teaspoons. Which is it? 2 tablespoons is a lot.

Why oh why do you consider chicken to be healthy? Do you not watch the majority of FMTV?

Hi Susan, thanks for your comment. I believe that there is not one right way to eat for everyone. I've worked in functional medicine settings where doctors recommend that some people some consume animal protein along with a plant-rich diet. Everyone has to figure out the best way for them. The recipes on FMTV are mostly plant-based and there are some fish, chicken, and beef recipes, too. There is something for everyone! ~Elizabeth

Ditto, was just about to ask the same question. I don't have a slow cooker.

Hi Jennifer, I mentioned this below and am copying it here for ease. You could do this in a braising pan or cast iron dutch oven with a lid over very low heat. It depends on your stove and pan so I can't give you an exact time; cook it until it shreds apart with a fork. I'm not sure where you live but slow cookers are usually a great price in the US, around $30 and I think it's a good investment if you're thinking about adding one to your kitchen. The benefit is the "set it and forget it" method—you have to watch it on the stove more closely. If you make it on the stove you want the liquid to gently simmer, not boil. And watch it closely because if all of the liquid evaporates it will burn. ~ Elizabeth
